For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. (Hebrews 6:13-14)
Today's Morsel: I've come to realize that the reason most people quit serving God is because they fail to gain an understanding of God's word. They hear of God's promises, but many do not have the patience to wait for them. When God told Abraham to leave home and He would bless him, like so many of us, Abraham was looking for the bigger things instead of the smaller things of God's blessing. Abraham had an entourage of things (that some would call a train of stuff), and people behind him. And yet, he looked for one thing as being blessed, a son of him and Sarah. Why don't we get excited about the little things that God does for us. Why don't we get excited about the church that provides the $10 offering to help as much as we do about the church that gives the $15,000. Isn't God in the little just as much as He is in the big? God just told Abraham I will bless you, not with what. Let me warn you, don't pack your bags and leave the church because you don't think you have received what God has promised you. His ways and thoughts are far above ours, and so His promises are much more than we can often comprehend.
Sing: Little is much when God is in it, labor not for wealth or fame. There's a crown and you win it, if you go in Jesus name!
Thought for Today: Fear not little flock, it is your fathers good pleasure to give you the kingdom!
